COMBINATION PARTIAL DENTURE
Stayplates, or flippers as they are more commonly known, are temporary or transitional partials made out of acrylic plastic used to replace one or more teeth stabilized with the use of 2 or more clasps. Because stayplates are made from acrylic, they are intended only for short term use, mainly for aesthetics, as they generally break with hard use. However, they are easily repaired.
SUCTION CUP DENTURES
Relines can be made of hard acrylic or soft silicone that is processed into an existing denture when it is loose and unstable making it difficult to chew. The acrylic or silicone relines bond directly to the acrylic of the existing denture, fills the area where the bone in the upper and/or lower ridge has receded, and adapts the denture closer to the tissue making it more stable enabling the patient to chew better.
